Presentation about the platform

AZON – The Atlas of Open Science Resources

In the years 2016-2019 four Wroclaw universities and the Research Institute PAS worked together in the project “aktywna platforma informacyjna” as part of the Operational Programme Digital Poland financed by the European Regional Development Fund. The overall sum awarded for the project was 33 692 030 PLN. One of participants was Wroclaw Medical University which digitalized its pre-war and post-war collections of journals, books and textbooks written by pioneers of medicine, professors from Wroclaw University or Jan Casimir University in Lviv. Among digitalised items were also histopathology samples depicting 1000 different medical cases.

The Atlas of Open Science Resources (AZON) provides scientific resources in open digital form to anyone interested. Almost tens of thousands of resources have already been accumulated on the platform and they include books, magazines, scientific articles, scripts, sketches, photos, conference materials, audio and video files, 3D models and many other scientific materials.

The Atlas of Open Science Resources does not introduce any restrictions on access to resources. All users with access to the Internet can use them, and they are made available without fees and registration. They can be easily searched for educational, research or commercial purposes.
